Review and Giveaway: A is for Adam

When the newly revised book, A is for Adam, by Ken and Mally Ham, came up as something I could review, my first thought was, "We already own the original, so this isn't something I need."

I'm excited that I got to review it anyway.

This 77 page book, directed at young children, consists of an ABC rhyming type of story about creation and the fall of man.





What is really fun about the new edition is that the hardcover book stands up, tent-style, so on one side is the illustration and the rhyming text:



I can sit on the other side and see the text, plus a whole lot of ideas for discussion and some hands-on activities.


This material was in the original edition too, but it is so much easier to use in this new version.




Trina (6) really enjoys going through this book, and she has started to read her part of the book outloud, more or less (she still needs a fair amount of help!)

Check out the video:



We really enjoy this cute book, and I am donating my original version one to the church, as that one is still perfectly usable as well.

I also have the chance to give away not one, but TWO copies of this book.  Right after I found out that New Leaf Publishing would let me give one away, Trina received this book for her birthday.  I decided that meant I could give away TWO copies.  (Yes, the giver knows I am doing this!)

I am going to post these as two completely separate giveaways.  Enter one, enter both... totally up to you!

This looks great. I have been leaning more towards my older kids with Bible time lately, so this would be great for the littles. And, it looks like we could easily share it with others after we've enjoyed it!

I'm interested in this because it will teach my four year old a Bible story while teaching him the alphabet (which he is working on right now anyway).

I am interested in this book because I have been teaching my preschooler about the Bible and it's hard to find good books for him that are appropriate.

I am interested in the book because it seems to be able to hold the attention of young children while teaching them about the bible at the same time!
